"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

America Accused

More allegations are coming out that America undermined the bomb plot investigation.
"It is understood that American intelligence officials, who were briefed about the police investigation, became frustrated at British reluctance to arrest the suspects. They urged the Pakistanis to swoop for Rauf to force the hand of the Metropolitan Police, who wanted more time to gather evidence.
"MI5 believed the plotters were linked to the highest levels of al-Qaeda through Rashid Rauf, a British man who was also involved in the build-up to the attacks of July 7 and July 21 2005. Rauf was reported to have been killed by an unmanned drone in Pakistan last year but senior security sources have told The Daily Telegraph that he may have survived."
It seems to me that this government is more concerned about furthering relations with Libya than protecting those we already have with America.  Libyan arms dealers at the London Arms Fair today  (Of the 53 countries invited by UK Trade and Investment's Defence and Security Organisation (UKTI DSO) to attend the event, several have been blacklisted by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch for human rights violations).

  2. Don't worry Opie - it will be 6 of one and half a dozen of the other. Our own govt isn't exactly covered in glory.

  3. It is JPT - and blatantly so. Govts used to hide behind diplomatic-speak and try to pretend it wasn't happening, but they can't do that any more. We're really being taken for a ride but people still don't seem to care - I don't understand any more.
